AUPF 2013 Official Song

We believe that music goes a long way to inculcate the spirit of the AUPF. As such, UniMAP proudly developed the 'TOGETHER WE ARE' AUPF 2013 official song.

The lyric of the song goes:

 

TOGETHER WE ARE AUPF

 

Together we are

Nations of Asia

Asian University

Presidents Forum

 

Heart, soul, imagination

We are for Asian education

 (Repeat)

Together we are

Together we are

Together AUPF

Together AUPF

AUPF….

 

Song Writer: Professor Dr Ismail Abdullah
Advisor: Datuk Professor Dr Kamarudin Hussin

 

Theme and Description

The song enhances special ideas on the theme of ‘presidential’ friendship, togetherness, collaboration, and partnership. The spirit of togetherness and collaboration is repeatedly highlighted in the lyric, so as to represent and accentuate a strong sense of friendship and imagination in all aspects of academic and educational endeavors. This unique bond of friendship is reflected as a part of the Asian soul. The soul forms a common spiritual ground and value to all AUPF Presidents.

 

Music and Composition

The music begins with a combination that reflects the richness of various traditional Asian sounds such as the gamelan repercussion, and followed by fine Asian ‘serunai’, ‘ching’, and ‘gendang sunda’. The music intro of traditional sounds are combined, remixed and orchestrated with contemporary electro-mixed fusion sounds to represent various academic and education values. The sound texture is a representation of AUPF’s musical theme ‘togetherness’, that imitates the spirit and imagination of the federation’s diverse cultures, which comes under one orchestrated and unified sound of imagination.
